Approximately 1 in 59 children are affected by autism, making it the fastest growing developmental disorder. It is also often associated with another disorder. Autism affects development in the brain, and if diagnosed early on, those affected can have a better quality of life. This is why the attorneys at Varghese Summersett PLLC are proud to announce our Annual Autism Scholarship to honor a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. Two of our criminal attorneys both have children with disabilities, and in an effort to recognize and honor them, we are offering this scholarship.
This scholarship is intended to assist a deserving autistic child who is in need of financial aid towards his or her educational or recreational opportunities. The award may be used towards a camp, tutoring, education, or other tools to help the student progress and live a fulfilling, happy life.
To be eligible, applicants must be 15 years old or younger and diagnosed with autism. All applications must be submitted by the deadline of April 1, 2020.
All scholarship criteria must be submitted on or before April 1, 2021. Applications sent after the April 1st deadline will not be considered.
Applications must be submitted by email to [email protected] with the subject line “[Applicant Name] – Autism Scholarship”.
